THIS IS REALLY EARLY BUT... oh also I am not sure if this manner of pre-discussion belongs here, exactly, so if it does not my apologies! Um.
BUT WELL seeing as barricade day was so much fun etc this year and I am going to be in London for it next year and we do have a lot of people in or around the UK in the fandom I thought perhaps we could organize something for 2011?
Like, and perhaps people in the US could do a parallel one there as well! But uh. I have been talking to Squeak and WE are all for this idea, but there's only two of us and that is not a party, so we're sorta poking around seeing who would perhaps be interested or able to come to such a thing!
We are trying to plan out relevant places to visit or things to do, although obviously there are infinitely less when you are not in Paris, buuuut. Obviously we could all see the musical one night! And, well, no one particularly related to Les Mis is buried anywhere in London to my knowledge, but they've got this collection of cemeteries
all built in the early 1830s in response to the excess dead people piling up because of cholera which are all free to visit and very pretty. Also we could have a picnic? On a big red blanket. And a sing-song. And cake.
...I don't know. There's probs a lot of Romanticism-related activities we could do as well I mean HAVE YOU SEEN THE APOCALYPSE ROOM AT THE TATE? It's so full of explosions. &c &c &c. But yeah my knowledge of barricade day-related ...things we might be able to do is obviously somewhat limited so does anyone have any other ideas? Is this a GOOD PLAN or is it too early to start thinking about? What do you guys think?
